Welp, you were already going to spend hours after Game of Thrones Season 6 episodes discussing everything in exhaustive detail, so why not official hosts? Yes, the world of Westeros will have its own HBO after-show for Season 6, as hosted by Andy Greenwald and Chris Ryan under HBO’s partnership with Bill Simmons.

Dubbed After the Thrones, the new series won’t air on HBO immediately following Season 6 episodes (at least until dates have been confirmed), but rather first debut on April 25 over HBO Now, HBO Go, HBO On Demand and other portals. So reads the synopsis:

Each week, AFTER THE THRONES will recap the latest episode, explaining the who, what, when and where, exploring the complicated politics and history of “Thrones,” and offering absurd and not-so-absurd theories about future episodes. Greenwald and Ryan will discuss the show as only they can.


For their part, Greenwald and Ryan previously hosted Grantland’s Watch the Thrones podcast, followed by The Watch on Channel 33’s podcast feed for The Ringer.

Game of Thrones Season 6 itself will premiere on April 24, trailers of which you can find below.
